Blog Candy and how to make the wreath

First of all, the blog candy I am giving away for the month of October will be: 1) Wood unmounted "Happy Grad" and Wood unmounted "Christmas Greetings". I will choose a name from the comment (by random generator on Nov. 1st. Remember that to be eligible for the candy, you must leave a comment and your email for the month the candy is offered.
Also I am offering Blog Candy for the month of November and the Royal Blog Tour. The blog candy for the month must be comments not made for the Royal Blog Tour. Only comments made under the Royal Blog Tour will be eligible for that candy. There are more requirements for the Royal Blog Candy so please read carefully when the tour is posted on the evening of Nov. 4th.

Many people asked how to make the wreath from my make and take. You need to cut out a circle from chip board. I used the sizzix circle Big XL and then cut a smaller circle for the inside. You will have to attach the cut off part of the circle together to form the wreath form. Then, put our paper in the folder, Put the chip board circle on top and run through the Big Shot. I then used a sponge dauber with artichoke to color the wreath and then real red to dot the berries.

Okay Jennifer -- I think you need to do a video on your wreath for me. That's what happens when you reach my age!!! But I loved yours and kinda got the idea. Can't wait to see your Royal Blog tour projects.
